TINICUM TOWNSHIP POLICE FOUNDATION    
Formed in 2018, the Tinicum Township Police Foundation is a grassroots group created to fund essential 21st century law enforcement tools, such as heart attach defirillators, suicide prevention training, and dashboard cams, without raising taxes. A recent example was the direct donation by a local resident of battery-powered chainsaws. Chief Phelan said that having the chainsaws will help clear roads and aid in expediting power restoration to residents and business owner properties after storms.
Donations can be made via mail to Tinicum Township Police Foundation, PO Box 118, Erwinna, PA 18920 or online at facebook.com/TTPDFoundation. Click here to read the full press release. Posted 1/30/19

ROAD & BRIDGE UPDATES:

HEADQUARTERS ROAD BRIDGE UPDATE
On October 22, 2018, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) filed a complaint (Case#: 2:18-cv-04508) in US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania challenging PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration's issuance of a Categorical Exclusion (CE) from an Environmental Impact Statement or Assessment with regard to the Headquarters Bridge Project, stating the defendants have unlawfully determined that the bridge must be replaced with a new 2-lane concrete bridge. The complaint can be found on the DRN website or the US District Court for the Eastern District of PA website. PennDOT's explanation of a CE can be found on the PennDOT website.

The DRN maintains that the bridge can be rehabilitated. PennDOT engineers and Transportation Secretary Richards have determined that the deterioration is too severe and there are two options: 1) Construct a new two-lane bridge, which PennDOT would retain ownership and responsibility. 2) Construct a new one-lane bridge, which would require Tinicum Township taxpayers to take ownership and responsibility.
